Create through meditation or solitude a piece of clothing unique to your spirit. Infused with prayers, each stitch combines together to capture the story of your life.
Operating as usual
Sometimes dreams take a while to manifest. Today I was gifted this old weaving loom. Imagine the stories we can weave.
Fabric recreated. Patterning complete. It's almost too pretty to cut.
The cloth in progress. I can see the women dancing and feel the heat of the earth under my feet. I think the next one will be a Bali inspiration-water and sun.
It's been a long time since we visited. Finally the time to make an amazing wearable is here.
And the journey begins with a pallette infused with the warmth and energy of Africa. Can you hear the heartbeat of the mother?
Working on a ceremomy dress. The purpose is to pray for a young boy and his health. Many blessings already received and the dress is a celebration. I added a little extra love to the inside. 🌈and love....
A Star Quilt is given to mark important life events. For the Lakota and Oglala (Sioux) people, the star quilt — wičháȟpi owíŋža — represents honor and generosity.
A vision born of ceremony, this massive quilt top will measure 18 feet x 18 feet and, when backed, will weigh close to 25 pounds. It will adorn a ceiling as a reminder of the power of prayer and living a honorable life.
Do you have a story to capture?
A gift 9 months in the making. Happy New Year!
Ideas continue to evolve. Here are a few symbols we've created for our magical bags. What would you like to see?
Goddess bags for your esstentials. We are working on more colors and blends too. Maybe a solid color for each element? Hmmmm. I even see the chakra symbols as an option.
Measure 5x6 or 12x16
Do you have a symbol in mind? Let's chat and see where the journey takes us.
Sometimes words need to be seen and unseen. This is a story of a woman's life in service for the last 25+ years. She shared her vision and story with me and I thought I'd share the words from Spirit.
"When the dawn appeared a prayer was realized. I ran through the fields without worry and became one with the creator. The story continues and encompasses the souls who struggle with human existence. The emotions overflow into the cup of humanity. It washes their minds and cleans the fear. Creator, I am humbled before you and have turned away from the human wants and desires. I am but a vessel for your work. Thank you. To realize that I am that I am and will always be your Servant."
With all our free time I am surprised to see I haven't accomplished my dreams YET. Sew....I thought I'd share some of the items I've made in past years. These are ceremonial clothing inspired by Spirit. Each is made with an individual in mind, many prayers and a lot of singing. Some start out in one direction and then transform during the actual sewing process. I'm still amazed and in awe when Spirit takes over.
I am working on the new website and store. It takes time to imagine the offerings and find the right photography so please check back soon.
In the in between time, if you are interested in commissioning a personal expression of your journey, please PM me and we can begin the conversation.
Sometimes a the look of a project changes during the sewing process. Then it returns to the original vision. There is a feeling with every creation. It is hard to proceed without that feeling. That is the Spirt. The spirit of the Creator and the spirit of the Fabric. Each are alive and each have a voice.
Listen to the Spirit and find peace.
The first vision has made itself known. "Restore the natural balance of life's energies."
We are creating a cloth infused with prayer and the frequencies of each chakra. Use on your healing table, altar, or as a personal wrap.
LifeTextures are absolutely everything you can imagine. Every thought spoken or unspoken, every moment of happiness and sadness, every dream you dream. In effect, LifeTextures are the pieces of our lives that we have created. It takes an artist with skill, passion, and an understanding of Spirit's message to bring them into dimension.

Journey Cloth will remain but will slowly change to reflect my original vision of creating one-of-a-kind items made specifically for the wearer. These items will be wearable art that reflect your true Spirit! More to be revealed.

It's important when you're basting a seam you have pinned, that you know exactly where your seam is going to go and exactly where your pins are.
Round two of getting ready for faire. 30 bolts of linen fabric. We're making girls viking style dresses. Should have ready for week 3 or 4. Guess that means you need to come visit us. #AFaireJourney at Sherwood.
We believe that life is a journey and every thought, action, and dream should inspire us to greatness.
The vision begins with a simple drumming journey or a guided meditation, or we simply sip some tea and share stories of what once was and what could be. From the conversation, the vision becomes seen. Images of color, threads, and trinkets start their journey to weave the fabric.
